and a strong presence on foreign policy than a senator from indiana. there was a global push for this from faith leaders and from anti-segregationists here in this country. we heard just now the secretary general of the united nations that no one has done more. no one in our era and generation has done more to fight discrimination than the moral leadership and example of this man who suffered for 27 years yet came out of prison with his wife winnie at his side and she has been imprisoned for 18 months at that time. in the anc, they came out of prison and marched in that march and from then on, his days in prison spoke of reconciliation. for that that he won the nobel prize and went on as he became. he helped sign into law the law that outlawed discrimination against the white minority. that belief in reconciliation that created a new south africa. that was a model for nations for people around the world. >> did he do it with kindness? >> he did it with love and with kindness and wit and humor. when he came here, he so impressed american presidents, we know how close he was with bill clinto

can begin to do something about the income inequality in this country. >> let me switch to you foreign policy. secretary kerry met three hours with prime minister netanyahu. he's heading back to jerusalem for more private meetings with netanyahu. they agreed to disagree about the short-term iran deal. senator hutchison, his argument, kerry's argument, we still are keeping sanctions other than freezing assets. this will be better for israel in the long-term and we won't agree to a long-term deal that gives iran the ability to have a nuclear weapon. netanyahu's argument is there would be breakout capability. what do you think the secretary of state should be doing? >> i think you're seeing some of the effects right now whereas mr. netanyahu was going to stop putting settlements in the west bank. now that's been pulled back. i think israelis are very concerned about this. i think the concern i'm hearing also is when you have a carrot and you're offering something, you need to see that the other side is doing that before you give the relief from the sanctions. i think that is the criticism
